Former first lady Michelle Obama will never forgive President Donald Trump for promoting a bigoted conspiracy theory that questioned whether her husband was born in the United States, the Washington Post reported on Friday.
When asked for his comments on Michelle Obama's strong words against him in her upcoming memoir, Donald Trump resorted to spouting unsubstantiated claims (aka lies).
"Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family's safety at risk", she added.
"She got paid a lot of money to write a book and they always expect a little controversy", Trump told reporters outside the White House, just before departing for Paris.
He added that he would never forgive her husband Barack Obama "for what he did to our U.S. military".
Obama also says she was surprised that so many American women voted for the "misogynist" Trump over Hillary Clinton, "an exceptionally qualified female candidate", in the 2016 election.
"What he did to our military made this country very unsafe for you, and you, and you", the president concluded.
The former first lady also denounces Trump's "birther" campaign questioning her husband's citizenship, calling it bigoted and risky.

In her new memoir, "Becoming", Obama reportedly derides the so-called "birther" conspiracy as thinly-veiled racism. "We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken".
Michelle Obama's memoir is set to release on November 13.
She also denounces Trump's "birther" campaign questioning her husband's citizenship, calling it bigoted and risky, "deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks".
Yet she is also candid about the bleaker periods of her marriage, revealing for the first time that the couple sought counseling when their relationship was under stress.
"I felt lost and alone, and I felt like I failed because I didn't know how common miscarriages were because we don't talk about them", Obama told ABC News in an interview. She says she has a "phenomenal marriage" and "we work on our marriage".
Obama also reiterates that politics isn't for her, alluding to her previous dismissal of a potential 2020 presidential run.
And while Trump suggested Obama left him with "old and tired" military equipment, Harvard University professor Matthew Bunn noted that it was Obama who, in 2015 "laid out a $1 trillion plan to modernize every aspect of the US nuclear arsenal over the next 30 years".
